LAT on the monk trying to save (a small part of) the world

I haven't been able to see any actual story to go along with it, but the Los Angeles Times has a small photo essay on Jiyul, the monk who was behind the effort to block a tunnel going beneath Puk'ansan National Park [북한산, aka Bukhansan].

The captions with the photos tell a bit of a story, including how this "polarizing monk" has now set her sights on blocking the government's efforts to turn South Korea's waterways, like the Naktong River pictured above, into superhighways of commerce through "restoration" and canal-building.
